Eric could have killed me...

Eric hates running and he hates being dirty.... so naturally I thought it would be a great idea to sign us both up for the color me rad 5k! A few of our friends signed up for it as well so I knew we'd have a good time :)
a not so subtle photo bomb
Before the race even started Eric swore he'd never run another race ever again. Something about an early morning wake up call, an estimated 10,000 runners, no breakfast and the excitement dread of color bombs being thrown at him may have had him a little on edge? Despite his negativity I was super excited for this race!
I'm happy to say that we all ran the whole time (not a whole lot of training happened leading up to this race, ha!) We don't know our time because they weren't timing us, it really was all about the fun :) A couple poor, unsuspecting children thought it would be funny to color bomb our husbands.... I'm sure those kids will be washing color out of their hair for the next week by the time the men were finished with them. And of course we had our own color war :) And if you can't tell by the pictures.... I daresay Eric had a little bit of fun on Saturday! I hope he'll run more races with me in the near future!
And a huge thank you to mom and dad B. for coming up and watching Mia while we were of inhaling more gluten free color powder that we've ever wanted to ;)

One day I'll do it! One day. Court, they're having a glow run up North in August. I so would do that, I would. Let's all do it.

How the heck do you run a 5k without stopping and not even trained for it?!?!

Allison said...

Well it looks like he had fun after all. :)

Maria said...

Ashley said...

I'd have to do lots of convincing my husband to get me to do any kind of run with me... and I've always wanted to do a color run! Just yesterday my husband was reminiscing the 5k we did where he, in his words, "almost died". Haha.

Kirsty and Seth said...
